Matlacha, Florida
Sat to sat rentals during June, July until Aug. 15 and holiday weeks. Will do shorter stays if open one week prior to arrival date. Affectionately known as the 'Rhinestone Fisherman' this fantasy Pirate/Ocean themed waterfront vacation rental will make for a vacation you will cherish for a lifetime.

Unlike some topnotch fishing destinations, the intriguing thing about Matlacha is its plethora of attractions for non anglers: galleries, shops, restaurants, landmarks, and visual curiosities.
